This course is about learning how to think in paint, explore the potential of paint, and understand the medium of paint. It will encourage you to create your own mark making vocabulary and embrace the joy of working on different surfaces such as cotton, linen, wood and paper. It is also about how you can realise your ideas through paint. Looking at the work of contemporary artists as well as painters from the past, you will learn how the language of paint has been used by other artists, and ways in which you can use this language yourself. The course is ideal for those who would like to start to work with paint, and for more experienced painters who want to learn more about diverse approaches to painting.

Magdalena Blasinska gained a BA at Edinburgh College of Art and is currently studying for an MA at the Royal College of Art. Her very specific way of looking and thinking about paint has always determined her practice resulting in constant experimentation with surfaces and painting materials. Previous exhibitions include: WiP Royal College of Art; Here/Now Royal Scottish Academy/Edinburgh Art Festival, RCA:NC New Contemporaries 2010 Royal Scottish Academy.
